We’re already in 2022, bidding farewell to 2021. The year 2021 went by in a flash! We are certain that we are not the only ones feeling this way.
But we’re happy to share that, during the last year, we’ve made great progress towards our aim of serving organizations in better managing their cloud.
With some brand-new feature updates in 2021, we’ve made tremendous progress on our product.
Let’s have a look at the product highlights of the year 2021.
DevOps Insights consolidates all the data regarding the resources in a single dashboard instead of showing siloed analytics through multiple dashboards. In addition to insights on leakages, it publishes the possible solutions or quick fixes that can be implemented right away.
With the help of the DevOps Insights dashboard, you’ll be able to see every detail of the resources that are unused/underutilized contributing to higher costs, and identify the resources which are consistently high on the consumption of the system resources and can crash anytime if not supplied with more capacity. You can look at the performance of individual resources through a graph and a weekly/monthly timeline showing the breakdown of the utilization of that resource.
Cost Analysis (Resource Analyzer + Cost saved dashboard)-
Scattered visibility across multiple dashboards and reports makes it hard to keep track of the cost of each resource. Resource Analyzer gives a holistic view of the cost and usage trends of resources like EC2 instances, EBS volumes, S3 buckets, making it easier for engineers to keep the cost in check. It enables hourly, weekly and monthly tracking of cost data on a per-resource basis.
In addition to this, users can keep a track of all the cost-saving activities they have performed on their infrastructure through a single dashboard.
We have made an all-in-one solution that provides a collective view of cloud resources and their meta-information involving lifecycle policies, creation dates, VPC information, costs, owner information, subnet information, etc. There are too many resources and the information is spread out over different pages of AWS cost explorer. To collect clean and accurate information for compliance requirements, engineers have to manually collate the resources. CAM simplifies this process by providing a portrait view of cloud resources spread across the entire cloud ecosystem.
You can view and analyze all your resource level costs with an intuitive UI. Also, you can see cost metrics of various resources/services at different levels of the infrastructure and can share the information (CSV + UI) with team members with a single click.
What does DevOps-Insights have next to offer?
We have built an effective software solution that reduces the time and effort required for managing assets on AWS. Now we are moving towards building a single cloud asset management platform for all cloud providers from AWS, GCP, or Microsoft Azure at once i.e.; Unified Inventory Management System for Multi-Cloud.
On top of that, we are working on building an Architectural Mapping that shows the link between all the resources. Through this architectural mapping, users can easily identify and track connections between the resource components, their relationships, and inter-dependencies. Along with this, the additional capability of change management where users can manage, track and view the changes happening to the resources ensuring your inventory is up-to-date.
Reports and Notifications
Customized reports according to the services, accounts, and regions save the time of the users. These reports can be scheduled daily weekly or monthly and delivered straight to your email or slack. In these reports, major changes in infrastructure are captured and sent directly to the responsible person. By this, users get a log of all their cost-saving activities that they have performed in their infrastructure in a single report over your email.
In addition to this, easy access to all the reports is provided through a single dashboard.
DevOps engineers while optimizing cloud spending on AWS, find it time-consuming and hard to reduce data transfer costs. This is due to the inadequate and distributed visibility of the source & destination of the resources or services that are exchanging data in form of traffic within or outside the cloud environment.
Data Transfer Visibility is a solution that identifies the source & destination regions/resources/AZ’s for any kind of data transfer within and outside cloud environments. With this, you can track visibility & gain insights on how to reduce data transfer costs. You can also easily see and apply recommendations and actions, and save on your data transfer cost and avoid any Cost leakages.
Cloud Cost Intelligence
Tech executives who are responsible for maintaining IT budgets have a hard time improving the margins on the products sold by the company concerning cloud cost because of a lack of visibility and tools to map cloud costs to products/services sold.
To not bear the repercussions of the reactive nature of cloud cost, preventive measures are needed beforehand. Cloud cost intelligence is a solution through which users get to see a holistic view of cloud cost which includes cost trends by business units like teams, products, customers, users, initiatives, and features. You also get a hierarchical Budgeting control and approval mechanism on top of these business lines to ensure that infra capacity is set according to application needs.
